Paying a Visit to Fortuna

Hungary, Croatia2022documentary73'As If in a Mirror

Meet Laci and Aniko – people for whom fortune has been truly good. Their lottery win turned them into millionaires within a day. The film authors accompany them at the moments succeeding the unexpected winning, during the excitement with a new situation and through the slow process of adjusting to the attributes of wealth, such as a white BMW with a driver, successive gigantic television sets and properties over a lake. How to invest money they have not had to pay for practically anything until now? What does an ordinary day in the life of a man who suddenly turned from a pauper to a local mogul look like?
